About the artist Angela Antonova
I am a self-taught artist. I paint pictures on different subjects, I like to create portraits of people, adding my imagination and changing reality. I create a world where everything is real and not so much. After all, it is sunny today, and tomorrow it will rain ... Captures the diversity of the natural and animal world. Every morning gives and allows to create new unique worlds ... In fact, I live between the canvas and the brush, I paint myself, my inner world. Sometimes something wakes me up in the middle of the night, I get up and understand that a blank canvas is calling me and I start to create, but ... it started in 2000, when I was in a coma for 6 days, yes, I survived and got married, then my two angels appeared - a son, then a daughter, and all this time I resisted, I did not want to paint pictures ... two months ago I took an ordinary sheet of paper and wrote flowers, then I painted them and I loved them so much that now this small the picture hangs in my room ... so I was born the third time. How could I live before without painting and creating another beautiful world? How could I refuse the universe? How did I exist without life within me? Now I breathe painting, I paint many pictures with my fingers, so I feel the canvas and paint, how it lays down and is absorbed into the hardboard, and some strokes remain on the surface, I feel the delight of merging with the plot that I create and I am glad that I live and I feel and I am glad that I can do it !!! Thank you for your trust!

Education of Angela Antonova
She finished 10 classes of secondary school. Immediately after graduation, I went to study to be a hairdresser and at the same time studied for 3 years in an evening school and already worked in a hairdresser. There is a certificate of the master of the universal in hairdressing. Now I have my own business. I work with animals and animal feed. But the main incentive for me is when I run home after work (I have no days off), I know that my canvas is waiting for me at home ...
